Louis Tomlinson has become the first member of One Direction to tweet about the group's double whammy of nominations at the 2014 BRIT Awards.
The boyband have been selected for the Best British Group category, and are automatically nominated in the Best British Single field for having one of the ten best-selling tunes of UK origin in 2013 - even if it was 'One Way Or Another (Teenage Kicks)'.
Can't believe we have been nominated for TWO Brits !! Unbelievable :)— Louis Tomlinson (@Louis_Tomlinson) January 10, 2014
In the Group category, the band have stiff competition in the forms of , Bastille, Disclosure and Rudimental. As for the Single prize, their nine competitors include Bastille, Disclosure and Rudimental again, plus Ellie Goulding with Calvin Harris, Ellie Goulding on her own, John Newman, Naughty Boy, Olly Murs and Passenger.
The quintet have been nominated for three BRITs in the past, and won two. In 2012, 'What Makes You Beautiful' won the Single prize, and last year they were honoured with a specially tailored Global Success trophy for all their achievements internationally.
